I love eating caimitos. Aside from they are delicious, they bring back memories of childhood to me. The times when me and my cousins were free to roam around the alleys of our compound in Balintawak. I remember we used to throw stones to a caimito tree full of ripe caimitos. The fruits easily fell down to our waiting hands and we just open them and eat them using our bare hands. Now, I am passing the love for this fruit to my kids.Caimitos are abundant during summer and last time I bought 5 pieces in the market, I paid only P20.00. Dessert...

This week, I was very happy that I got to go to Nurture Spa Village with Mommy Bloggers Philippines to celebrate Celebrity Mom Maricel Laxa-Pangilinan’s 45th birthday. As most of the events I attend with the blogger moms, I usually go home with lots of goodies from sponsors. This time, I was most happy because I got to try a pack of mixed protein drink powder from USANA. I heard lot of good things about this brand when it comes to losing weight. I was also trying to contact some of my blogger friends in the past of how I can get...

Look at this photo. This was recently taken by my daughter. I’d like you to see how confident she was on smiling. That was our main goal when her Dad and I decided to let her wear her Myobrace. Thanks to Dr. Urbi of Green Apple MRC Dental Clinic which has a branch in Trinoma, my daughter is on a straight path to her best smile.My daughter is already on her 8th month wearing Myobrace. If you will follow my posts on this category “MRC Myobrace” you’ll be able to know how it all started and what my daughter went...

I have seen the word “multiple intelligence” again and again online. And as I’ve read different mommy blogs and articles from different sites, I am happy to feel that children these days are lucky to have parents who are open minded and very supportive of their kids when it comes to educating them. But what really is “Multiple Intelligence”? Multiple Intelligence This kind of intelligence started only as a theory by Dr. Howard Gardner, who is an intelligent person himself and studied in the popular “intelligent”...

Death is a reality in life we can never escape. As many of us have always been saying, “Una-una” lang yan (it’s a matter of time). For everyone who have lost a loved one, I think even these thoughts can’t ease the pain. It’s like there’s a hole inside of you which can never be healed once the person passed away. You will always be helpless and wanting, wanting that person will be back again. This is my Lola adelina, the noblest mother I knew. It was unfortunate for me when we lost her just after I got...

When it comes to dengue protection, I consider me and my husband as OCs (obsessive-compulsives) and we are not ashamed of it. You can never be sure with dengue and with the rate of increase of dengue victims no matter what the weather is, we all have reasons to be fearful and protective. Honestly, when you open our medicine cabinet, you will see all sorts of brand of mosquito repellents (lotion/spray/stick on). I also grab mosquito repellent samples when I see them being given away in malls. As much as possible, we wear pants and clothes...

Children are confident to smile when they don’t have tooth decay If it’s sugar-free, yes. And it’s a happy fact for me because we are chewing gum lovers. My daughters have misaligned teeth that’s why my eldest is wearing braces. But both of my kids do not have tooth decay. And I realized maybe because I have this habit of always bringing gum packs in my bag. Recently Xylitol invited us for an intimate meet-up of moms like me. And that was when I’ve learned all these dental benefits of sugar free chewing gums. To...

crack on the center left portion of my daughter’s myobrace On our 2nd visit to Green Apple Dental Clinic, we were glad to see the good dentist Dr. Urbi after a month from our first appointment with him.  So far, we didn’t really experience any problem with the Myobrace trainer except that it had some cracks on the lower center where the tongue touches it. It may possibly because she couldn’t help chewing and putting some pressure on it using her tongue when she is asleep. I was worried that it will have an effect on...
